    Hi.

    Can any mac people tell me if it is possible for me to upgrade my Mac from Tiger 10.4 to the latest Snow Leopard?

    ...Can I preserve my existing files and aplications or will it over-write everything (ie my photos, photoshop etc)?


    ....and, which version to i get? there seems to be a few at different prices.

    this...?
    Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.K.)

    this...?
    Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Family Pack - Apple Store (U.K.)

    or that?
    Mac Box Set - Apple Store (U.K.)


    I had a quick look on the forums there and it's seem I can go from Tiger to Leopard, but still not sure if that will mean a total format or not...

    I'm all confused :scratch:

    John I just missed it lol If I would have found this before you updated this is what I would have said..

    Yes you can...I would recommend backing up all your files on Cd's lol....

    Did it cost you anything?

    i backed the important stuff up on to an external drive, but everything went fine.

    I bought it from the apple shop.

    People upgrading from Leopard to Snow Leopard are recommended by apple to get standard upgrade for £25.

    Those upgrading from Tiger to Snow Leopard are recommended to choose the 'Box Set' for £132. It comes padded out with iworks 09 and iphoto 09 etc.

    Tiger users are able to purchase the £25 upgrade, and it will work fine, But, you will be breaking your user end agreement with apple which means any automatic software updates in the future are disabled.
